Car Repairs in Winter

Winter Weather

There are not many dry days over winter but there are plenty of wet ones not to mention the snow and occasional sub zero temperatures. All these weather conditions can have adverse effects on your cars body work such as the rapid onset of rust and blown paint and lacquer on body panels. Some damage will not be effected by the winter conditions such as light scratches on the exterior and seat burns on the interior but just about everything else will and if left could increase in severity and therefore cost more to fix at a later date. Basically any form of damage that breaks the paint surface such as key scratches, scuffs, kerbing on wheels, stone chips and cracks can all get worse over the winter months if left.

Winter affects

Once the paint work has been broken and the metal is left bare water and salt from the roads can get into the panel and quicken the onset of rust, this is the same with all metal panels. With scuffs and car scratches on plastic panels such as bumpers and some wings the paint will not rust but will over time start to peel if left, which can cause the lacquer layer to be blown peeling layers off a larger area than originally damaged.

Repairs

Acting quickly and having your damage repaired before the winter sets in is vital to keeping your car in its best condition and by doing this you don’t have to worry about rust or peeling paint for your damage will be fully sealed and protected. If you can’t afford to have the repairs carried out straight away or its at an inconvenient time then buy some touch up paint and use it to cover the affected areas, this will give the panels some protection and reduce the possibility of rust or peeling paint.
